News Telegram

St. John Bosco’s football team remains the top-ranked team in the area, even after their 30-23 loss to Kahuku in Hawaii. This loss marked the program’s first nonleague defeat since 2017. Despite the loss, senior running back Chauncey Sylvester performed well, scoring two rushing touchdowns for the Braves. St. John Bosco faced a 22-3 deficit in the second quarter but managed to score 20 unanswered points to take a 23-22 lead in the fourth quarter. However, costly turnovers and penalties in the final minutes allowed Kahuku to secure the victory. The Braves will now have ae week to regroup and prepare for their Trinity League opener against Santa Margarita on September 29.

In the second spot is Long Beach Poly, which secured a 48-19 win over Lakewood. Senior quarterback Darius Curry was instrumental in their victory, throwing for 300 yards and four touchdowns. However, Coach Stephen Barbee expressed dissatisfaction with the team’s slow start and overall effort. Despite leading 21-13 at halftime, Poly allowed Lakewood to stay within reach, with the score at 28-19 in the third quarter. The Jackrabbits ultimately pulled away and scored the game’s final 20 points. With ae week ahead, Long Beach Poly will have time to prepare for their next game against Millikan on September 29, a matchup that has been the de facto Moore League championship game in previous years.

Both St. John Bosco and Long Beach Poly have shown their strengths and resilience throughout the season. Despite their recent setbacks, they remain top contenders in the area and will be looking to bounce back stronger in their upcoming games.
